The results are not promising either way.

I should hope not! The article notes:

Most in this group relied upon the information published by the Science community as evidence for an old Earth such as carbon dating...

Radiocarbon dating is useless for determining the age of the earth. It is useful for once-living things and extends back only about 50,000 years. The age of the earth is determined by several forms of radiometric dating and is about 4.5 billion years old.

Much of the sample population appears to be seriously deficient in their science education.

Not everyone can homeschool.

Since the evolutionists control most of the science education, wouldn't that lead us to lay more blame at their feet, than, say, at the feet of creationists?
